I Can't Believe It!


Sorry for taking so long with my Cupcake Challenge card but I couldn't find my mojo. I was needing some inspiration and after hours of looking, I finally found it! I saw Dawn's Raspberry Suite color challenge and thought it matched the pinks in my Raspberry Tart paper perfectly! After adding some Basic Gray and Whisper White card stock and I had the right colors!

So guess what...this is an SU! only card! Can you believe it? I sat myself down and decided that I was going to make a card using only Stampin' Up! products no matter what! I am so proud of myself for succeeding! :D I used my Central Park stamp set and stamped the image in Basic Gray, Cameo Coral, and Regal Rose. I used a rub-on from the Chit Chat pack and added some white detail to the scallops with my gel pen. To finish up the card I added some taffeta ribbon, silver brads, and a silver clip.

Now, do you want to hear some fabulous news??? I AM GOING TO THE CHA CRAFT SUPERSHOW! :D I am so thrilled! Nick and I just happen to be going on vacation to Orlando that week and CHA is IN Orlando this summer! Woohoo! I couldn't believe it! I asked Nick what he thought about it and he said "Sure, we can go!" Anyway, I wanted to share my news with you because I have always wanted to go but it's been too far away. If any of you are going, let me know and we can meet up!

Ok, before you go check out Taylor's blog for the sketch!

Love this card girl! And can I just say that I'm EXTREMELY jealous you're going to CHA!?!? I want to go sooo bad...but unfortunately 16+ hours of flying and an astronomical plane ticket do not seem to be in my near future. So I'll just have to live it vicariously through you!! :-)
